'Islam not responsible' for Fort Hood massacre: US imam (Mohammed Abdullahi)
AFP on Yahoo ^ | 11/6/09 | AFP

Posted on 11/06/2009 3:09:45 PM PST by NormsRevenge

SILVER SPRING, Maryland (AFP) – Islam is "not responsible" for the bloodbath at an army base in Texas where Muslim-American army Major Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly gunned down 13 people, the prayer leader at the mosque where the officer regularly worshipped said Friday.

"We offer our condolences and prayers to the families that have a person who died," said Imam Mohammed Abdullahi over loud-speakers that carried the weekly Muslim prayer to several hundred worshippers gathered at the mosque.

"Islam is not responsible," he stressed.

Many of the worshippers who had come to the mosque in this suburb of Washington knew Hasan or had seen him at Friday prayer, which he attended regularly when he lived in the Washington area.

To them, the news that he had allegedly opened fire with a semi-automatic weapon and a handgun in a crowded troop processing center on the sprawling Fort Hood base in Texas, mowing down 13 people and wounding 30 others, came as a shock.

"Islam doesn't command anybody to do something like that," said Shaikh Khamis, who has prayed at the Silver Spring Muslim Community Center mosque for 11 years.

"It's very sad, a big tragedy for everybody," said another worshipper, Ibrahim Gayi.

"We pray for everybody, all Americans, not only Muslims," he said.

Asif Qadri, head of the medical clinic at the Muslim Community Center, described Hasan, an army major, as "very gentlemanly.

"He was sociable, likeable. We had regular, casual conversation -- he didn't manifest any particular view either way," Qadri said.

"When I saw him on television, I couldn't believe my eyes," he added.

Nonsense. Islam is responsible. The Democrats are now the Islamist Party. They support and protect them and vote them into office.

He seemed so normal.

Attended honor killings and beheadings regularly.

Some might say he was a little extreme. I don’t know.

God help us all if he is mainstream.

As far as I am concerned, Islam is responsible. Now if they had done anything resembling trying to prevent these type attacks then I might believe them.

“Asif Qadri, head of the medical clinic at the Muslim Community Center, described Hasan, an army major, as “very gentlemanly. “

So this guy hung out with the terrorist scumbag shooter. His attempt at soothing rhetoric rings hollow, in fact it sounds like he knows he’s about to be busted.

A “religion” whose very name means “submission” which was started as an Army to conquer and to kill the enemies of Mohammed now makes the claim that the rantings of the lunatic madman Mohammed had nothing to do with the state of mind of one of his followers? There is a word for that in the American dialect of the English language—horsesh1t!

Of course it was a shock. They were not in on the killing spree and the body count was considered low. Another victimhood/apology for the Mooslums article...

"Islam doesn't command anybody to do something like that," said Shaikh Khamis.

Au contraire, Pierre.

Read the Koran, it is there, over and over, in black and white, in the original Arabic and in all the more authentic translations.

Non-Muslims are inferiors, and subject to the will of the "Noble Islamics". It is not a sin, in the eyes of Allah, as revealed to Mohammed, to kill and disable non-Muslims. Of course, Mohammed may have been a somewhat faulty prophet, as he seems to have shown the clinical signs of having suffered from a schizophrenic personality disorder. He was subject to murderous rages himself, and self-rationalized what would today be considered to be sociopathic behavior.

If not downright bizarre.

This is the guy we were not suppose to be afraid of. He was just a normal peace loving muslim (sarcasm). He would not have been on a terrorist list or suspicious in any other way. Until recently. The army was in a no win situation. If they had begun an investigation into him or removed him from his job he would have screamed racial profiling and discrimination and made all kinds of trouble for the army. They leave him alone and he proves we can not trust even the so called normal muslims living among us.

What other religion teaches that killing the infidel is a good thing.

What other religion thinks beheading, murdering, maiming your daughter because she spoke to a boy is a good thing.

Well...let's see about that.

One or two slight changes I need to make here....

OK...ready.

Major Benjamin Goldstein (an Army psychiatrist) had been having problems with the war in the mid east.

He obtains two handguns, goes to the center at Ft. Hood, jumps up on a table shouting "ELOHIM GADOL" while firing his weapon and killing 13 innocent people.

So....this isn't about Judiasm, is it???

This is now, always has been, and will continue to be...a religious war. And we'd better make up our minds to win it....or convert to obammer's religion.

Period.

Perhaps they are not directly resp[onsible. They were not responsible for the Beltway sniper either.

Perhaps they are not responsible any more than Al Sharpton was responsible for the riots after the Tawana Brawley incident.

Vertainly he didnt plan them, but he set them up.

My last comment of the week. If ANY other group or religion, cult or club had had as much death, destruction, mayhem, murder, misery, upheaval, economic chaos, or absolute anarchy and terror associated with it that group or religion, cult or club would be toast by now. Trust me, it has everything to do with the religion, everything to do with the “spiritual guidance” these folks are receiving and to stand there and pee on my leg and try to pass it off as rain is an absolute insult to my intelligence. Don’t do it. Stop it. I refuse to buy it. It’s bogus.

Good night and have a pleasant weekend, unless you’re burying your loved ones, then you will have all my prayers and intercession for your pain and suffering and the reception of your loved ones in Christ to be welcomed into his loving embrace or into Abraham’s arms.

These people riot over cartoons. they put out Fatwahs if you write anything that makes them mad. They put suicide vests on their toddlers. They run over their children with a Jeep. They teach their students to hate and despise a country no bigger with New Jersey. They have sons of camels as their Kings and they hire thugs to shoot their women who would dare show a face in public.

I am not buying their PR spin a moment longer and the American people, God love them, they give any group the benefit of the doubt.

The problem is that Islam is a religion used to oppress a whole bunch of people that a few have access to the wealth.

CAIR’s already been out and about and doing its best. They might slip some bucks into the hands of a few media outlets, maybe some members of the CBC.

Not gonna work anymore with we who carry this country on our backs.

Baloney.

Islamic precepts certainly include murdering infidels.

In this case, however, it was completely explicit: the murdering Muslim was shouting "Allah Akbar" as he started his wanton rampage.

These murders were explicitly done in the name of Allah.

The Imam might have said something true along the lines of "We personally didn't tell Mr. Hasan to kill Americans", but it is a flat and absurd lie to say that Islam is unrelated to this rampage.

A mosque in Silver Springs Maryland?
All I can say is WTF or maybe it would be more accurate
to say WAF (We are F-—ed). Fubar!

Two totallly different political philosophies, one of tolerance
(America - a democratic republic) and the other of intolerance (Islam - a tyrannical dictatorship) cannot coincide. The intolerant one will commit violence to dominate or should I say bring about submission to Islam by use of horrific violent means. When will it become apparent to the tolerant that Islam is not about God and worship, it is about bad men enslaving the tolerant, the weak and the foolish. Fubar!

“The word “Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing, precaution, guarding.” It is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies....Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur’an and Sunna, including lying under oath in testimony before a court, deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a “religion of peace”.
